Chapter 127: Calm

Following Fu Xingchuan’s movements, the corpse cage shook slightly.

Those little white monsters were still crawling on the ground, shaking out strange afterimages. They seemed to have sensed something, lost interest in everyone present, and slowly crawled into the depths of darkness, receding like the tide.

The shaking stopped. Luo Wanxiang let out a sigh of relief.

She snapped on a portable light and illuminated the small flesh cavity like day.

Luo Wanxiang’s short hair was messed up, and there were traces of mucus on her goggles. Her situation was barely okay. Her work clothes were probably made from waterproof materials, as the damage wasn’t serious. Zhong Chengshuo couldn’t help but take a few more looks.

The mechanical ball next to Luo Wanxiang smoothly broadcasted steadily. “Terrain fine scanning progress 96%… 99%… Scanning complete. Navigation route has been pushed.”

“We’ll go through the esophagus. Any anomalous spaces or unidentified organisms will be detected by my AI,” Luo Wanxiang announced as she handed the map over to the other three people. “As long as there’s no issues with the route, we should be able to leave here within two hours.”

Yin Ren hummed, not making any comments.

“Wait a minute. Wait a minute!”

Lu Xiaohe opened the communication and shouted into the headsets.

“Their close-range data is very detailed, but we have the big topographic map.” Lu Xiaohe coughed several times. “Zhong Chengshuo, send her the data from my additional scans. I’ll be able to contact Ge Tingting and Huang Jin soon… Hey, what’s up with this signal data?”


There was a thin cat cry deep in his ears, causing Yin Ren to raise his brows.

A few steps away from him, San Jie covered her head, causing the ethnic ornaments she was wearing to collide with each other, making a soft rattling sound. Her hair was braided into a thick black braid at the back of her head, and when she lowered her head like this, the thick braid slid in front of her.

“In my head…. There’s a cat meowing…” After being attacked by the white monster, her spirit hadn’t been stable.

Yin Ren comforted, “Don’t be nervous, I heard it too.”

Zhong Chengshuo, who didn’t hear it, took out his hardcover notebook with interest and recorded the discovery—Luo Wanxiang had no special reaction. The cat’s meow was probably only heard by cultivators. When they returned home, he would study this with Yin Ren.

As he was writing, the tip of Zhong Chengshuo’s pen stopped subconsciously.

The concepts of “returning home” and “doing things together” for those two were now as natural as breathing… and it was a wonderful feeling.

“Cognitive coordinates are confirmed. Contact established. Lu Xiaohe, write down the signal band. I’ll help you establish communication later.” In the unilateral headset, Dr. Meiqiu’s purring voice was clear.

“How did you do that?!” Lu Xiaohe drew a cold, deep breath.

Zhong Chengshuo had the same question.

In addition to being a person with the “Infinite” branch ability, Meiqiu was still a true domestic cat in terms of lifespan, habits, and physical traits. It couldn’t withstand such a high load, let alone use human techniques, but it could influence human cultivators in some form.

Dr. Cat, well aware of its advantages, purred contentedly. “Why should I tell you?”

The subtle sound of teeth grinding came from Lu Xiaohe’s communication.

“We haven’t even hit the road yet, but the three rear commanders are already in a heated discussion,” Yin Ren leaned in and whispered. “They’re really competitive.”

Zhong Chengshuo: “The two million bonus is enough for you to eat 10,000 times at your favorite BBQ buffet, which means you can eat one meal a day for 27 years.”

Yin Ren stood at attention in an instant, showing a very serious look.

“Very good. Now the number of people on both sides is equal, and there’s a rear commander following each field.”

While Dr. Meiqiu of Yandu showed off, there was a sense of urgency in Lu Xiaohe’s voice. She took a sip of water and cleared her throat.

“Then the rear commanders of the respective teams are responsible for short-range intelligence judgments, and I’m responsible for information communication and general route coordination between the two teams. In this way, everyone can get points, and there won’t be any duplication of work.”

Linnan’s AI Commander: “Roger that.”

Dr. Cat disdainfully commented, “Why are you so nervous? Anyway, even if I don’t win, I have enough money to spend in my life.”

Lu Xiaohe took a deep breath. “Anyone who has objections can say so in advance.”

Meiqiu: “No objections. Your judgment is fine. I’m just not happy listening to human orders.”


In the unilateral headset, there was the sound of Lu Xiaohe crushing a can angrily.

Luo Wanxiang leaned against the wall of flesh and scratched her head. “Anyway, that’s the way it is. Let’s follow the big map and leave…”

Zhong Chengshuo poked Yin Ren in the back.

Yin Ren was thinking about something, so he didn’t respond for a while. Zhong Chengshuo looked at the other’s long, waterfall-like hair and decided to use the wonderful touch he had experienced just now…

Comrade Xiao Zhong opened his arms, wrapped his arms around Yin Ren’s shoulders, and then rested his chin on it. Sure enough, his adrenaline and dopamine were secreted at the same time, and they were once again mixed into an electrified excitement and resistance.

Luo Wanxiang’s face twitched for a moment, and it was clear that she was struggling for a bit before finally deciding to pretend she hadn’t seen anything.

Yin Ren, on the other hand, was literally taken aback. “Zhong Ge?”

Zhong Chengshuo turned his head sideways, and a small goosebump appeared on the side of Yin Ren’s neck, and then it gradually turned light red.

“I have an objection.” Zhong Chengshuo’s voice was too small to be heard. “You let me be lazy, but I’m a bit stifled.”

Yin Ren couldn’t help but stretch out his hand and rub the other’s warm hair. “…Go on.”

After receiving confirmation, Zhong Chengshuo quickly raised his voice. “We can’t go through the esophagus.”

Lu Xiaohe and Luo Wanxiang said “Ah?” at almost the same time.

“This is not an ‘escape game’, it’s a ‘skirmish’.” Zhong Chengshuo spoke without letting go of Yin Ren. “Whether it was bugs or other traps before, strictly speaking, it was an inherent part of this environment.”

The mechanical ball carrying the AI floated beside Zhong Chengshuo, and a flashing red light rushed straight to his face.

Zhong Chengshuo subconsciously let go of Yin Ren and wanted to stand up straight and speak as before… Ah, no, no, he had to be as lazy as possible.

Thinking of this, Zhong Chengshuo clung to Yin Ren again. Imitating Yin Ren’s relaxed appearance, he scattered his weight on his lover and worked hard to implement the lazy plan.

“The previous time was mostly an ‘adaptation period’ for us to get used to the environment and try to take action. Now that everyone’s actions are relatively clear, it’s time for Shian to take action—in a real skirmish, there will definitely be enemies.”

Luo Wanxiang shivered.

Zhong Chengshuo was lying on Yin Ren’s shoulder. His eyes behind the glasses seemed to absorb all light, while Yin Ren’s face was so beautiful to the point of abnormality. Coupled with the stench of corpses coming from all directions, the scene not only didn’t look sticky and ambiguous but was eerie.

She previously thought Zhong Chengshuo was just an add-on.

Yin Ren looked outstanding and was adept at handling things. On the other hand, Zhong Chengshuo only had various scattered props with little spiritual reaction. He was probably in a supporting role similar to a “human scientific encyclopedia”.

But now, even as a science post, she could detect an almost intuitive “something’s wrong”.

Luo Wanxiang: “You mean, those messy things are just the appetizers of the environment, and next, Shian may take the initiative with a ‘hostile attitude’?”

Zhong Chengshuo hummed naturally as if it were a matter of course that “Shian may be hostile”.

“Individual actions are fine, but we’re now taking a joint route. In order to ensure the difficulty of the competition, Shian may proactively set up ambushes on the ‘main road’.”

“Since it’s joint, I suggest going the opposite way. We go in the direction of the abdomen, rendezvous with the Yandu branch, and concentrate our strength on puncturing a hole to leave.”

“But there are too many uncontrollable factors with that approach,” Lu Xiaohe, who had been listening all along, didn’t directly refute the idea. “Aside from the difficulty of meeting up, the outside corrupt organizations are unstable. If we deviate from the natural passages within the human body, we might not be able to respond well if we’re attacked…”

“Linnan is well equipped,” Zhong Chengshuo replied as he stared at Luo Wanxiang’s bulging pockets.


Ten minutes later, Zhong Chengshuo was walking towards the esophagus with his head down.

His proposal was rejected, and the reason for the rejection was simple—San Jie was blind, and it was too risky to act rashly. Luo Wanxiang said she wanted to take it step by step. Since the owner of the equipment was unwilling to cooperate, they could only proceed slowly in the direction of the oral cavity.

However, Miss Luo, the mechanic, didn’t deny Zhong Chengshuo’s point.

She asked the mechanical ball to patrol in front over and over again and only dared to move when she was sure it was okay. Lu Xiaohe and Meiqiu were busy setting up Ge Tingting’s and the others’ communication, so the surrounding area suddenly became quiet.

Under the lighting of the mechanical ball, the narrow and rotten esophagus was like a dark tunnel.

Zhong Chengshuo’s gaze swept towards Yin Ren as always, but this time the other party didn’t look back at him. Zhong Chengshuo followed Yin Ren’s gaze and found he was looking at San Jie’s bone necklace.

Before he had time to ask, Yin Ren had already stood beside San Jie. “You also encountered that kind of white monster? It’s so scary. I almost collapsed.”

The “palpitations” in his tone were so real that Zhong Chengshuo couldn’t tell if they actually came from the heart or not.

“We have also encountered people from Sunken Society who can ‘Resonate’ before, and it feels quite similar… That kind of monster also has special abilities?”

Yin Ren’s tone was just right, with the casualness of “chatting casually with comrades in arms”, making it difficult for people to refuse.

Zhong Chengshuo’s eyes lit up. Something close to happiness rose in his heart—before he could figure out how to be polite, his social master took the lead.

Sure enough, the comrades of the Linnan branch fell for the trap.

“It’s not a specific ability.” San Jie shook her head honestly. “You got it backwards. It’s not that they are like people with the ‘Resonance’ ability, but that the ‘Resonance’ branch is like them… There are records in my house. They appeared two thousand years ago, but the earliest special abilities in people only appeared a thousand years ago.”

Speaking of this, she was a little lost.

“The records in my family are too complicated and messy, so they haven’t been fully recognized by the officials yet… But my grandparents won’t lie to me.”

“Do you have research on ‘those things’?” Lord Ghost King asked. “Your response was much better than mine just now. I don’t think they harassed you much… Ah, if it’s confidential, then pretend as if I didn’t ask.”

Luo Wanxiang, who was walking in front, turned her head and looked at Yin Ren warily.

“It’s okay, Luoluo. We’re living creatures in this world. There’s nothing we can’t talk about.” At this moment, Sanjie’s eyes seemed unimpaired again, as her dull gaze turned towards Luo Wanxiang.

There was a hint of majesty in her voice.

For fear of missing something, Zhong Chengshuo turned on his cell phone and started recording as he stared at the girl dressed as a shaman.

“They are neither creatures nor evil things. We are just aware of their existence.” San Jie introduced in a slightly hoarse voice.

“People with strong psychic abilities or lunatics can vaguely sense them. They can influence people’s emotions, causing them to shout, laugh, or achieve enlightenment and bliss. Some people don’t eat, drink, or sleep, just to enhance their spirituality and experience the joy of spiritual communication… but if they make a mistake and come into contact with the wrong ‘type’, there are also those who become insane and commit suicide.”

San Jie made a prayer gesture and let out a long sigh.

“There was an old man who told me before that if you walk to a place that doesn’t exist, you can see them. If you dream too deeply, you will see them. If you touch them rashly, your mind will be destroyed. As for how to resist the influence…”

Zhong Chengshuo looked past Yin Ren and gazed eagerly at Sang Jie, wishing he could record the conversation in place of his phone.

“I’m sorry. I’m afraid I can’t ‘teach’ you how to resist their influence.”

San Jie touched the bones of her ancestors on her chest, and her tone became a bit more reverent.

“I can resist them to some extent, thanks to the protection of the spirits of my ancestors’ remains in heaven. I have no right to lend them.”

Oh, it’s this kind of arcane and mysterious explanation again. Zhong Chengshuo had an expression as if he had been punched.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t borrow the human bone necklace for research…

Yin Ren looked at his lover, whose face was cloudy and gloomy, and continued amiably, “Is that all? It’s quite interesting. Let’s talk about it more, even if it’s just some stories.”

San Jie was also a member of the special investigation team in Shian. She shook her head. “Now is not the time to tell stories, but I can tell you one thing…”

“They neither live nor die, and our elders call them ‘Primordial Elementals’.”

“A powerful ancestor predicted that the appearance of the Primordial Elementals in the world is a sign of the end of the world… Ah, appearing in this place doesn’t count as an appearance, right?”

She nervously pinched the corners of her clothes.

The author has something to say:

Xiao Zhong: I don’t know how to be lazy.

Xiao Zhong:

Xiao Zhong: Just imitate Yin Ren.

Xiao Yin: ?

Of course, if you count inflation, you can’t get BBQ for 27 years…! But such calculation is still shocking. Two million is really a lot.
